d'incise is wellknown by his releases on Zymogen, Test Tube or IOD. He is member of the Audioactivity music & visual collective founded in 2000 in Geneva (CH), releases electronica, electro-acoustic, experimental music solo or with various partners. And he also pratices free improvisation with the Diatribes-project and runs the Insubordinations netlabel, dedicate to improvised music.
His release "Stase / Contre Stase" contains two pieces of live-recordings.
"Stase", recorded during the Mapping Festival, April 2008, is a 22-minutes-piece, based on prepeared sounds from an acoustic guitar. Drones and textures are flickering around in the beginning, shifting from front to back and increase to a point, where all sound-elements seem to thicken to a massive, pending drone. "Contre Stase", recorded in an empty room in an empty house, deals with a similar concept. All sound-textures and layers concentrate on a point, but after a short periode of attraction, the elements seem to drift away, floating into open spaces.

resting bell releases another nice record. not ambitious like some releases but still very good. its a bit like an awkward warm blanket of sound which is definately worth a listen.

wonderful use of space and room here, with tones which just echo and resonate beautifully. a nice little release from a very talented artist.
